I've seen this tall dark, shadowy man. He happens to be 6ft-7ft tall, I am unsure. I discovered this man ever since I was at least 10 years old. My cousins and I were playing and the lights turned off and all we saw was this tall man standing there. I was unsure if I was the only who saw it when I realized that my cousins saw the same man. He was slender and happen to be wearing a top hat, sort of a Abraham Lincoln style. It was really odd. I have always seen spirits while growing up but, it was mostly children I saw. I tell you now that everyone who claims this to be a "gift" is wrong. I do not see this as a gift or a curse just something that happens to be a part of me. Seeing this man makes me wonder who is he? Am I the only one who has seen him besides my cousins? What does this mean? Other family members of mine have seen the same top hat man. I just don't understand, who is he? I only have seen this man twice in my whole entire life, the second time was by the end of my bed. He was standing there, just a shadow but, I felt like he was staring at me even though I was unable to see his eyes. This man wasn't creepy, I didn't feel any bad energy around him but, just a shadow? He was just a shadow with a top hat who happens to have the right lining of his clothing, the right lining of his face. I wonder does anyone else see him other than me? Has anyone else discover this man as well? I would love to hear your story sometime or to even discuss this with you. I just want to know if anyone knows who is the top hat man?

I was about 6-8 years old and this happened at night in my parents home while they were still married (Divorced 2 years later)
One night I woke up in my bedroom, in my bed and it was complete darkness. The only light was coming from my window that had an outdoor street light outside of it. Anyway, I woke up and immediately at the foot of my bed a man with a dark cape and a dark top hat was standing there. His face was not there, just blackness. He looked like a magician. At that very moment he reached both his arms out in front of him and moved them up, and my bed started to rise. As a child this terrified me. I was frozen, couldn't move, couldn't scream. All I could do was just close my eyes and deny what I was seeing. At some point I fell back asleep. I remember this day like it happened yesterday and that was 35 years ago. My mother still lives in the same home and I've always felt a type of presence there throughout the years. My daughter who is now 22 years old has also seen shadow figures at my mothers house but nothing to this extent.
Every time I tried to get up I was pushed back into my body by three monks at the foot of my bed. I could feel myself trying to sort of get out of my body, but I kept getting sucked back in by the monks who were mentally pushing me. My body never physically moved. This went on for a couple of hours. Finally I stopped looking at the man and a while later turned to check the clock and he was gone as well as the monks.
A couple of years after this happened, I had a NDE. I don't know if these two events are related, but I am interested in hearing what others have to say.
It wasn't until this past couple of weeks ago, that I thought about him again, (as I have not seen the man with the top hat for about 4 years) but I met a girl at Chapters Bookstore (who was about ½ my age) who was telling me about her first experience with seeing a spirit, and she described a man all in black wearing a black hat. I was bewildered that someone else had seen the same man! So, tonight I decided to google the Internet about this spirit, only to find out that this spirit is a very popular spirit! I had no idea! It gives me great validation about having seen this spirit, because I didn't know so many others have also seen him, to the point of describing him in the exact same manor as I had.
I'm in disbelief that others actually describe him in the same amount of detail, height, colour, style of hat, type of coat! It's uncanny.
Thank you for posting your experience. As a 42 year old police officer, I realize that it is very difficult to explain these kinds of experiences to the public (and be believed) as most will never believe, until perhaps it happens to them.
I do canvas paintings, and in one of them (I found "him" later, after photographing the finished work, I could see the shape of a man in a Top Hat. But I get lots of faces/animals in my paintings so wasn't surprised. I also had a grandfather who wore a Top Hat, so it could have been my ancestor just keeping an eye on me. Which spirits are very keen to do.
So he could be one of yours too.
I hope this helps a little.
Its makes sense to me. I lost my mother in November of 2009 September of 2010 my ex husband asked for a divorce. I was waking up at that time for a while. But the negative feeling wasn't until he left
